The Edison Film

Clip 1

This clip features Loe Fuller. A copyright frame reads "Copyright 1897, By T. A. Edison Pat'd Aug.31.1897"

It's clear that a good deal of thought and care went into to use of colour tinting in this example.

An alternate version of this film - with different colouring applied - is in the process of being digitised. It will be posted on this site when ready.

Clip 2

This shows Annabelle Whitford performing the Serpentine Dance, but we have little additional information about this clip.
